Newman University offers an innovative foundation year to complement our Undergraduate Degrees.  Our Foundation Year is the first year of an integral four-year degree, with completion of the Foundation Year leading in to the first year of the 3 year degree in Criminology.

The foundation year enables those unable to access the traditional UCAS tariff requirements for a three year degree, an alternative route into beginning and ultimately gaining an honours degree.

You apply via UCAS for the Criminology (with Foundation Year) course and after successfully completing the first year you will progress onto the final three years of the degree. At this point there may be the opportunity to transfer onto a related degree at Newman University. Such a transfer is subject to the agreement of the course tutor and meeting any additional entry requirements.

Entry Requirements

All students apply through UCAS. Students will ideally require 48 UCAS points to access the programme.

Those with significant work and life experience of a complexity that demonstrates an aptitude to study at degree level, but with no formal qualifications, will also be favourably considered. Different degree pathway options available at the end of the foundation year may have different additional entry requirements.

Whilst not a condition of entry onto the foundation year, students wishing to enter particular named routes will need to have met these by the time they complete the first year of this four year course – Criminology BA (Hons).

If you require any further information or clarification of entry requirements please contact our friendly, helpful Admissions department, who will be happy to help.
